Significative effort has been done within the Antarctic geodetic community to establish a reference system at continental scale. GIANT (Geodetic Infrastructure for ANTarctica) is being promoted within SCAR in order to unite researchers from different countries in an effort to produce a unique homogeneous set of geodetic observations. The SCAR GPS epoch campaigns project developed a GPS network of measurements. Geodetic observations collected continuously or during episodic campaigns are integrated with global observations in order to determine station coordinates in the International Terrestrial Reference Frame, ITRF. A short summary of some of the latest geodetic activities for Antarctic reference system establishment are described.
